. tucker said he saw a meteor coming in this morning but for tonight, for the peak viewing time, we'll have a fair number of clouds. so i think it will depend on where you are this evening. so we'll see. i don't have great hopes about seeing that activity. we'll see. let's take a look at what is happening. we'll go back to yesterday and the temperatures, 97 degrees was the high at reagan national. that was one degree shy of tying the record. we did break a record at dulles international. it got to 97 degrees there. the record was 96. that was set in 2001 so we ve a new record at dulles. bwi marshall nowhere neared record. 75degrees right now here in washington. we dropped off one degree. 71 in baltimore. 75 in fredericksburg. let'slike at the temperatures across the country. we'll see a couple of things. first of all, warm air in the eastern united states. very warm continuing warm conditions down to our south. 82 in dallas. 67 in witch ta. where you find that difference in temperatures, you know from studying your weather you're likely to find some thunderstorm activity and let's get to th
meteorological organize and i a big change occurred in 1979. i remember this. >> tucker, do you remember this? >> absolutely. i was just a littlguy. at first, all the storm were named after women because traditionally, most meteorologys were probably males an they would name ships after women so they name the storms after women. and in the late 70s, there was the women's movement and they decided maybe they need to name it after men and women because it was sort of looking down. >> equal opportunity. >> i see tony over here biting his tongue. >> because to be honest, there was some sexist thinking. there were some who thought these storms are temperamental like a woman. we have a list of this year's storms. take a look. >> we are new claudette. we are three storms in. >> the next one is danny. the name repeat every six years. >> i was going to ask that. >> yes, they do. however, as i believe you all know this too, if there is a storm that is particularly deadly or costly,that name is retired and a new name is inserted. so we will not have another tropical storm or hurricane andrew, camille or
precautions because you can get burned justify as much on a generally cloudy day as on a sunny day. tucker, have i said that the right way? >> i think it was okay. >> what is the ron why we get burned through the clouds? >> because uv radiation penetrates the clouds, it will penetrate the atmosphere and it burns our skin. it gets into our skin and causes chemical reaction and we start to burn. we can try to protect our skin and then we burn. today's uv index is very high. you will burn quickly. >> i think we just forget about it. we don't use the protection when it is cloudy. are out in t sun, you're like i better be careful. >> here is what i would generally say. you correct me if i'm wrong. if it is cloudy and it is cloudy enough that it is raining, if you are out in the rain, you don't have to worry about it too much. if it is like a partly cloud whether i day, treat it as if it is sunny. >> wear it like your lotion. >> that's right. especially during the summertime. so thank you. hopefully, we helped some people, julie wright included. if you have a question yo uwany answered, go to my
